Even though Chelesa Piers CT’s new fitness center isn’t scheduled to be open for another six months, the organization is giving a behind-the-scenes peek at the construction phase.

According to Erica Schietinger, Chelsea Piers CT’s vice president of corporate communications, the fitness center will be 65,000 square feet and will offer traditional cardio and weight machines, café, two lounges, over 100 fitness classes, a mind & body center and babysitting options.

“People have been asking for it,” she told Stamford Buzz in April. “We had a fitness offering, but it wasn’t nearly enough. This will really be one of the best health clubs around.”

This is where the fitness center’s mind & body facility will be built:
